How a Church of Christ Minister Became Catholic – Lawain McNeil

April 12, 2024 No Comments

Though raised Free Will Baptist, it was as a teenager in a Church of Christ context that Lawain McNeil’s faith caught fire, especially under the mentorship of a basketball coach. Feeling called to ministry, he studied at Cincinnati Bible College and became ordained in that tradition, which was committed to restoring the ideals of the early Church.

However, as he continued to study what the earliest Christians actually believed and how they worshipped, Lawain began to notice several things present in history that were absent from his own belief and worship.

He decided to seek out a spiritual home where all those elements of early Christian doctrine and practice were still living realities; and that search eventually led him to the Catholic Church.
